Nic: Phelps Slimes Christ’s Name

RE: Westboro Baptist Church: Coming to a high school near you

Nic: As a Christian, it saddens me that people like Fred Phelps can commit such ugly acts in the name of God. I'm heartbroken that he has set the stereotype of how much of the world thinks of real Christians. As an American, I am bewildered that (Westboro Baptist Church) is able to maintain their 501(c)3 status.

Question: Is it fair to judge Christians by the actions of extremists like Fred Phelps & Co. of the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kan.?
